Mancos Valley Dragonfly Preschool, a Waldor Inspired preschool in Southwest Colorado


Our brand new building is finished and BEAUTIFUL! It has truly been a community effort with many volunteers helping to create the outdoor and indoor play spaces.

We are still accepting children, and have an ongoing enrollment policy. Space is limited as we keep class size small, so apply today by filling out an application form! Or contact us to schedule a tour of the school.



The mission of Mancos Valley Dragonfly Preschool is to foster a love of learning and a reverence for life by providing an education inspired by Waldorf principles that honors the unique wonder and imagination of early childhood. 


Our non-profit preschool’s compassionate teachers and nature-based atmosphere create a nurturing environment for children to express their unique potential through creative and experiential activities. Through a curriculum based on the Waldorf education model, the Mancos Valley Dragonfly Preschool inspires imaginative and mindful human beings to become advocates for the earth and humanity.

Preschool is at bottom right, where X marks the spot!

Preschool is at bottom right, where X marks the spot!

It’s not about a specific type of education. It’s about life, about people and connection, about a sense of wellbeing for yourself, your friends and our world. School, especially Preschool and Kindergarten, should be a place for children to set foundations for those experiences. Let them be children, use their curiosity, keep their magical reverence. They will have plenty of time for academics later. Soon enough they will be learning about the science of seasons. Until then, let them sing about Grandfather fire and Sister rain.
